On #ChattingThePictures, we read this powerful abortion photo by @evelynpix from a @PPFA clinic in AL just weeks before SCOTUS leak. As we note, these scenes have become more intimate w the crackdown, the procedure now literally on the clock. Watch now: https://www.readingthepictures.org/2022/05/abortion-on-the-clock/

Not just a scene of grief but another city tainted, added to that infamous roll. …And what of that Superman ring? #BuffaloMassacre (📷 @apmrourke @AP_Images)

Pic by @theotherclee of GOP’s newly-anointed candidate for PA gov. Photo shows #DougMastriano posing w heat-packing militia members in Harrisburg Nov 2020 for an early ‘Stop the Steal’ rally—a precursor to Jan 6. Striking a pose, domestic terror is now a party platform.

Photo by @apmrourke outside Tops on Sunday. The background frames the everyday. The foreground and the black-and-white captures the way it will never be the same. @AP_Images #BuffaloMassacre
